I would like to ask the City if there are emergency procedures in place in case of emergencies. I mean if these procedures are established and well placed and made available to everyone. I am not an expert to this but as what i have experienced on most cities abroad, they seem to have more information in place even though they are not a typhoon or earthquake prone areas. Every information is important in all aspect because as what i have seen in Tacloban. The news from CNN is very clear enough that we have water surge rising up to 60 ft. And the wind is so strong that light materials will be just blown off. Even the President of the Philippines called on to evacuate the people but as you can see the casualty is very high and it seems that the people has been caught off guard. It is evident that the information is there but i dont know how and why those people did not evacuate to higher grounds. The casualty should have been prevented if and only we prepared for this. If the city have the procedure in place. Has it been updated to keep up with the last typhoon and earthquake that we just have? We have to make a risk and assessment with each and every categories of emergencies. If the risk is in place then we have the right decision to make with each emergencies and what we have to make. It is important that this procedure is updated and made available to everyone. In each every case we have the right leader and the right people who will implement the procedure. And the most important thing is we have the right decision each time. Communication is crucial also in such events. How we can let people be aware of the things that we implement like if we evacuate how can we make sure that everyone has received the information to evacuate. I am deeply saddened by the events that happened to our nation but we have to prepare than never. We have to have an objective that the casualty should be always zero each time these emergencies arrive to our city. Life is more important than the things we have and we could always rebuild. I am doing this because of my concern to our people. Again i am not an expert to this. But this system is proven in every institution or even private offfice. Preparation is crucial to every emergencies and it could mean our lives. We must act the same.
